    Obama is really getting scared because he now asking Bill and Hillary Clinton to do his dirty work for him. He did his best to humiliate them in the primaries and now he wants their help. Look at the way he treated Hillary and now he wants their support. Are they not suppose to be racists? Why would he want them on his side now? They should tell him to go to hell.

    McCain & Palin are really getting the democrats upset because they are now seeing that they made a huge mistake by selecting Obama instead of Clinton.

    Well we will see Hillary Clinton in 2012.

  2. nuclear world needs diplomacy

    Anyone who thinks a vote for Mccain/Palin could somehow help America is Dilusional. To continue to think that America can survive without some sense of diplomacy is ignorant. With so many other non allied countries in possesion of nuclear weapons, and Sarah Palin's Pit bull attitude we will surely see more terrorists attacks on the united states. Vote for the Future of America Vote Obama/Biden. The baby killing comment ha.. So let them live in broken homes and when they become threats to society then its ok to kill them Thats Palin's stance seeing as how she supports the DEATH PENALTY!! Hypocrisy at its finest..

    How about Monica Lewinsky? Is she joining them on the campaign trail? What a threesome they would make.

    No Hillary, no Bill in the Wite House.

    Rich calling Obama, Osama. your a typical person from the party of white only. No substance. I hope OBAMA does secure a woman's right to choose. What part of a woman's body is supposed to be legislated by you rightwing nuts to be protected from herself? Don't see how it's your business. instead, your hope is that every baby is born so that you and your Republican side kicks can send them off to die in illegal wars to line the pockets of your warmongering war profiteers.

    17 months of attacks on Clinton did their job. The attacks on Palin certainly don't seem to be working. (Even though Obama let's his flunkies do the dirty work.)

    With the length of the primary season and all the Obama air time, I'm already feeling like I've had 4 years of him. I change the channel when he comes on TV. He's worn out his welcome, maybe that's why America is falling for the "new star."

    What a change, why doesn't Obama start changes now. He nows the Clinton thing is not working. This is the time to start showing what the lips are saying.

    Hopefully they will peel back more of Obama and have him tell us about his Muslim faith or was that remark he made Sunday just a slip of the tongue?

    When oh when is McCain going to talk about the issues and stop lying to the American public. Obama has been talking change since he got into the race, McCain has talked about change only after everything else he has tried has failed.......

    The person that Obama should have campaiging with him is Hillary............as his vice presidential nominee. Actually, if the incredibly dumb Dems. leadership hadn't rairoaded all the superdelegates to be for Obama, Hillary would have been in her rightful place, as the presidential nominee and she would be way ahead of McCain by now.

    But if Obama had chosen Hillary as VP, McCain wouldn't have chosen the lightning rod Palin and this election would be a slam dunk for the Dems.

    I think that if "judgment" is an issue here, Obama sure didn't have it in this case.
    P.S.–Thanks to Joe Biden for defending Hillary today.

    Bill Clinton really needs to get his butt out there and deflect all the negativity thrown at Obama by campaigning honestly for him. He needs to show the country what kind of person McBush really is.

    Why is John McCain hiding behind Sarah Palin's skirt, Sarah has 5 kids of her own she doesn't need another child.

    I thought John McCain was looking for a VP, now it turns out that he was really looking for a new mommy.

    All I see on every political new agency is the same thing over and over again. People leaving their opinions on this presidential race and yet CNN and a few other says that the polls tells us that the race is close.I see the majority of people against the GOP and yet they keep telling us that McCain/Palin are ahead. I don't believe a word of it. Just read what people are saying. Talk to people and they say the same. They are fed up with Bush and McCain and want change. From all this I can honestly say come November, it will be a onesided victory for Obama/Biden
